October Fun Part II: Halloween Inspiration

October Fun Part II: Halloween Inspiration

Halloween has to be one of the most creative holidays ever!! There’s so much one can do yet I find myself struggling to find the time.

I love being creative and will use every excuse possible to do something useful. Holidays like Halloween and Christmas give me that fulfillment, if life just didn’t get in the way I would do so much more!

Off course costumes are just the tip of the iceberg. Oh and let’s not forget my obsession with pinterest that has a gazillion inspiration boards.

Do you plan anything special for Halloween??

Well I would like to share a few of my favorite pictures and links for all those “Halloween” and “DIY” enthusiasts.

do you have your COSTUMES picked out yet?? Check out Simply Kierste for some costume inspiration.

What about a special homemade TREAT like Popcorn Balls?? This is a recipe that I’ve been wanting to try for the longest time.

One of the many traditions we have at our house is the carving of the pumpkin. Off course Zeenah looooooves getting her hands dirty taking all the seeds and gutting the Pumpkin.

We tend to do traditional Jack-O-Lantern because it’s just that much easier with 2 kids but I always wanted to venture out and trying something new.

I would love to be able to paint a set of pumpkins or doing glitter designs.

Unfortunately with the lack of Pumpkin Patches in Kuwait and the obscene prices of a traditional pumpkin I’ve resorted to just admiring all the designs online.

Of course I could always venture out into making Paper Mache pumpkins and then doing whatever design but I’m almost afraid to get something like that started and end up with too many pumpkins and no place to store them!

I hope that these few ideas and links helps you get inspired and assists in Making Life Memorable for you and your kids.

As we grow older we forget the small pleasures in our life. I am blessed to have 2 girls that remind me often of those things with their attitude and giddiness.

Like the excitement of packing for a trip rather than the stress of it all.

The plane ride to our destination as part of our fun than hours wasted on a flight.

Didn’t think a Taxi ride would be exciting but they found it intreguing.

The 6 flights in the elevator to reach our room.

Over and above that the fun of jumping up and down  on the hotel bed.

Off course there’s always the long bath and bathrobe pleasure!

So today I stopped, took a deep breath and starting looking at things in the eye of my girls.

Sometimes they teach us lessons and remind us of savoring every moment because today they taught me another meaning of Making Life Memorable.

Guide to your Thanksgiving

Guide to your Thanksgiving

Gobble Gobble Kuwait!!! Happy Thanksgiving Y’all. How’s your day going so far??

Many of you may be surprised that I don’t host or have Thanksgiving events…. Shocker isn’t it!?!? Well between Halloween events, my birthday & Jennah’s birthday all within a span of less than 2 weeks I call it a day or should I say “Month”, for November off course! Plus I must have a head start for my Christmas events.

With that said I love attending Thanksgiving events. Gives me a chance to be a guest rather than the hostess and THAT’S something to be VERY Thankful for:)

With That said I do want to give those planning their dinner tonight with something I received from allrecipes to make your day go a little smoother.

Always remember its all about “Making Life Memorable” and don’t forget to give thanks and tell those you love that you are Thankful for having them in your life.
